3 Auditoire de Calvin
Situated opposite the right side of the Cathedral, you could be forgiven for missing this simple, plain building. Originally built in the 15th century, in the mid-16th century it became the gathering place of English, Scottish, Dutch and Italian Protestants to worship in their native languages.
John Knox also preached here after he came to Geneva as a refugee from Scotland, and it was here that he and fellow countrymen decided to translate the Bible into English. It took three years, from 1556-1559 and became known as the ‘Geneva Bible’. It is still a place of worship today.
